ADAMAS embarks on consulting activity in China

In March 2016, ADAMAS capitalized on its dynamic development in China to create the department ADAMAS Consulting, offering a wide range of services complementary to the firm’s existing legal services, ranging from implantation study, project contract drafting, partnership research and recruitment. Through the creation of the new branch, ADAMAS aims to support not only foreign companies looking to implant and invest in China, but also Chinese enterprises looking to invest in France and Europe.


This new entity will be led by Jean-Maurice Hébrard, former General Manager for over two decades of ERAI (Entreprise Rhône-Alpes International) China, which is an agency of the French region to support its international economic development and improve its attractiveness. After having assisted and advised over 1,000 enterprises in the local market, Mr. Hébrard has acquired excellent understanding of the Chinese decision-making process and forged strong links with the administrative authorities of the country.


As the only French firm and the only independent firm among the first four international law firms to obtain the authorization to practice in China in 1992, ADAMAS has a historical presence in the country and clear expansion strategy, explained Denis Santy, partner in charge of coordinating the Chinese Desk, in a recent interview with Leaders League.
